Teacher: Joe Holden
Credits: 2
Textbooks: Legislating Morality by Geisler and Turek
Fulfills: General Elective or Christian Apologetics Emphasis


In our pursuit of knowing God we will study the arena of Ethics and Morality. We trust that an equipped disciple is one who is able to navigate through the world of choices with a framework for decision-making. The course will introduce different ethical theories that exist within the field of ethics and then move into current ethical issues faced in the 21st century. It is the objective of this course for students to understand the basic theories that exist in the field of ethics, to understand the theories that are most coherent within a biblical world view, to make use of an ethical theory in specific circumstances and to understand the most hotly debated ethical issues of the 21st century.
